I'm not a doctor, but my advice would be to go see one; not online either--a real, in person doctor. B-)
I'm back. Sorta.

Good advice. I could state how long professional athletes take to heal a stress fracture but they're in better physical condition than most of us and get the very best treatment available, so you could easily double the time for standard humans ;-)

Sorry, not a clue. I've heard that stress fractures are worse than an actual break, but I'm certainly not a doctor so take it for what it's worth. (not worth much) Lol. :-D

I believe that only time heals stress fractures. But of course, I'm no doctor, therefore you should consult your local physician. In no way am I accountable for actions that you might take based on my advice. By reading this advice you agree to hold me free of any liability.

j/k
